Nokia Removes Native VoIP from N Series Phones

Starting with the N78 and N96, Nokia has removed the pre-installed voice over IP client normally found on N Series phones. The client allows users to make phone calls through the Internet, rather than via traditional cellular networks. Nokia confirmed that the SIP stack on the phones will still support VoIP services, but users will have to add their own VoIP clients to N Series devices running S60 3rd Edition Feature Pack 2 in the future. The VoIP client will remain on Nokia's business-focused E Series devices.

Why would they remove that from the phone? Why not just leave it in there...but as an optional means to use VOIP? Most VOIP providers don't let you use an external client for a phone. If they do can someone please tell me if said client is available for phones like mine. HTC Dash (Windows Mobile 6.0) which comes with a 802.11 b/g antenna 🙂

The way this is phrased...

it makes it seem as if every N Series phone comes standard with VoIP.

Has that always been the case? I thought only a couple of Nokia's phones had VoIP.
